"I'm not a runner and really just bought these for the easy and comfortable, barefoot experience. As I'd hoped, they are very comfortabe,and easy to slip on and go. They're light with good cushioning and no stiff upper areas to rub your feet. I'm mostly thinking of this as a summer shoe, but I'll probably wear it some in the winter, too.
I love how it fits, although it may be slightly small (particularly in length.) I normally wear a 10.5-11 ,and ordered an 11, after reading reviews saying that it fit small. The 11 is the perfect size for me and I worry that a 10.5 would have been too small, although I never tried one on in that size.
There are a couple of things I'm disappointed with about the shoe, however. The first is the color. I got the "Stealth/Dark Grey-Voltage Yellow" shoes. I should have paid attention to the name, because the "Voltage Yellow" color is more neon then the picture on the website. I was hoping to wear these with jeans, but this yellow is too bright to be fashionable with anything other than workout clothing.
The other thing is the "barefoot" fit. Other barefoot shoes I've tried didn't lean me forward, as running shoes usually do. They cushioned my heel and sole, while keeping my foot flat and allowing it to arch naturally. These are more like traditional running shoes, in that they lift your heel off the ground, until you're leaning forward. That may be desireable for running (I don't know?), but it's not like being barefoot, unlike some other shoes"

"From the moment i tried them on at the sneaker store i fell in love with this shoe. It was soo comfortable i wanted to just run out of the store with them. There soo flexible and breathable that i wear them when i workout, go out, and hang out. I wear these sneakers everywhere, and without a doubt i will always own a fresh bare of NIke Frees. When i die ill prolly own a couple dozen pairs."

"I run 12-20 miles/week in the summer. This is my first experience with a barefoot-style shoe ... been on it for 2 weeks. It's very light. I'm used to heavier stablilty shoes. It has none of the stability shoe support that wraps your foot tightly. I find that a welcome change. Very comfortable. So far, I've experienced none of the traditional shoe break-in pains. I have very wide footpad -- no matter the shoe my pinky toe usually rips through the side after 500 miles or so. I find the width typical, maybe slightly larger than average. I bought 1/2 size larger than my shoe size and it fits perfectly."

"I pray that Nike hasn't quit making these wonderful shoes. I have owned 4 pairs (including the pair I have tucked away in my closet) and I love how comfortable theses are. The Nike Free+ 2 seem to have more support which I don't need. PLEASE keeping making these shoes. I am a walker and yesterday I walked 22 miles non-stop. No blisters, no sore legs. Just a lot of love for my Nike Free+ shoes!"

"Ok, i just bought these shoes today, and when i put them on, the feel so natural. When i first put them on in the store, I felt like i wasn't wearing anything at all. If you are a runner and have any sense at all, BUY THESE SHOES! It is so much easier to run on the balls of my feet because of the enhanced flexibility. I may be 12, but i can tell the difference between a good shoe and a bad one, and this is definitely an amazing shoe.
I run track for my school, and these shoes have decreased my time for the mile from 5:53 to 5:47 one week later. The are also great for sprinting because how light they are and their flexibility allows you to run on the balls of your feet with less effort.

"This shoe is handsdown the best lightweight running shoe ever produced by Nike. I've had spinal surgery and every shoe I've tried has not helped my spine or lowerback but after purchasing these and using them for the first time, they've helped manage my lowerback pain, stablized my spine and posture, and strengthened my legs and feet. I now own 6 pairs and now I'm on the hunt for all the colors produced. Thank You Nike (especially to the designer) you have helped change my life!
Five stars can't compare to the actual ratings I would put on this shoe."

"I love this shoe. By far the best shoe i have ever worn that has a good sized toe box and just feels great. I run ultra marathons and the furthest i have ran so far is 105 miles in a day. I run anywhere from 6-20 miles a day and i can say these are the best shoes i have found that allow me to run pain free. Running on mainly pavement in the mountains western NC in the winter is no joke and these shoes have survived everything ive put them through. The duribilty and toughness is amazing + the light wieght is a wonderful feeling when you want to do speed runs."

"I have had these for 6 months, and they are so light that switching to another shoe would probably be dificult. The grip is great at first, but starts to lose it after about a month of 10-20 minutes of various training,running and stuff. lightness is great. only thing i can think of comparing them to is the new ones, or vibram five fingers. cant decide. but if you like to kill your shoes, pick these cuz thats hard to do!"

"after a run around the block in some 80 degree heat after months of winter, i took off the shoes to let my feet cool off. I noticed the insole was yellow in parts, in the exact shape of a foot. I'm not sure if that was there before i actually wore them, but if it wasnt then thats a pretty effective training tool. it is brighter where you put most of your weight when you run, which can help with form."

"I bought these shoes a little less than a month ago and now i absolutely love them. i thought that they were comfortable when i fried them on but once they break in, they get even better. When you firdt try them on you will feel a little bit of support on the ball of the foot but don't worry if yo uare lokking for a minimalist type shoe because this goes away after about 10 miles. I do all of my training in them form long runs (10+ miles ) to speedwork (400 m, 200 m, 350 m, 200m hills...)."

"I have been a fan of the Nike Free product since 2004 when they first hit the scene, and I am becoming more of a fan with each new model.. I am an avid workout and recreational sports person and these shoes have become a standard for me as well as my family and friends, due to my encouragement for them to try the product.. The shoe runs slightly snug, but it is supposed to so I recomend ourchasing your traditional size.. They will also stretch over time and mold to it your foot.
I recently underwent a major knee reconstruction surgery, and these shoes have actually become a large part of my recovery.. With sock type fit and the leg muscle building technology of these shoes, I have been able to incorporate them into my physical therapy in a more helpful way then standard running/work-out shoes.. The flexibility of the shoes has allowed me to gain greater strength and stability in my legs.. THANK YOU NIKE!
I own every colorway that nike has released, and plan on purchasing any other colorways they may release.. I greatly encourage anyone and everyone to give the NIke Free Run+ a try and promise you will fall in love with them as I have."

"I love the color of these shoes for one. But the best part about them is that they provide a great ride and allow for everything, wether that be intervals on the track or a distance run in the country these shoes will take you anywhere and you WILL run faster in them than non barefoot shoes. They do get rockes stuck in them but as long as your good with taking them out then you'll have no problems"

"Best shoe on the market if you ask me. Just brough my second pair to lounge around in. Really weaar a 7.5, but it wasn't one of the choices. First pair is ued for running. Very comfortable shoe and added benefit of Nike+ technology makes the shoe even greater.
Great job to the shoe designer."
